Undeclared and This Is the End star Jay Baruchel has been cast as the lead in an FX pilot created by former Saturday Night Live writer Simon Rich and executive produced by Lorne Michaels, THR reports. Based on Rich's book, The Last Girlfriend on Earth, the half-hour comedy follows as a guy who's reentering the frightening dating scene after being dumped. If the show gets picked up, this will be Baruchel's first TV job since the short-lived 2006 courtroom drama Just Legal, which he starred in with Don Johnson.

In almost (gulp) 40 years, I've been to three films where the theater shook from the audience laughing so hard: Borat, Knocked Up, and, now, This is the End. Granted the crowd attending the sneak preview of This the End at the American Film Institute (AFI) were aspiring filmmakers salivating over the careers of the film's auteurs Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg.

Emma Watson, Jason Segel, and David Krumholtz are going to play themselves in Seth Rogan and Evan Goldberg's End of the World, which used to be know as The Apocolypse and before that Jay and Seth vs. the Apocalypse. The three, along with the already announced crew of Jay Baruchel, Jonah Hill, Danny McBride, Craig Robinson, and Aziz Ansari, are all guests at James Franco's house party when the apocalypse comes, which stinks because that means they aren't coming to my apocalypse party. The bright side is some of them are supposed to die, which I read to mean that ALL OF THEM WILL DIE but in a [...]
What was once called Jay & Seth vs. the Apocalypse is now called The Apocalypse, and its cast of Jay Baruchel and Seth Rogen has ballooned out to include James Franco, Jonah Hill, Danny McBride and Craig Robinson – still all trapped in an apartment during the apocalypse. There's always room for those guys in an end-of-days fallout-shelter-type gathering, as I always say (it's a very clumsy motto, and almost never applicable to the situation). Seth Rogen will direct the movie, which will likely start shooting in the fall.
